Designers brought out the Heavy Metal for the Fall 2017 shows.
Metallics were present in everything from bedazzled retro disco-ball boots at Saint Laurent to futuristic space-girl ensembles at Chanel and Miu Miu making the message clear, Fall 2017 is the Time to Shine!
As is often the case, runway looks don’t exactly translate easily to street looks. If you’re not ready to go full mylar balloon jumpsuit a la Comme des Garcons (and lets face it who is) then opt for pops of silver as opposed to blinging it out head-to-toe.
My advise is to play with metallic accents before you go full-on astronaut with the metallic trend.
A silver bag or glittery boots are a safe way to guild your look this season. Try pairing a fun metallic jacket or bag with a basic tee and jeans then work your way up to incorporating more bold statement making metallic pieces.
Silver will liven up the simplest of outfits or will work as a neutral when paired with loud prints or bold primary colors. Just be careful to make sure your metallic pieces look luxe and not cheap. Faux silver leather and some fast fashion liquid silver pieces can look tacky rather than trendy.

Haha I think playing with metallics before fully jumping in is a good idea- not sure I could pull it off!
I dont think there are many of us who could pull it off head to toe LOL.
Those boots are so cute!
Thanks I got them on clearance at Macys end of season last winter for a steal!
STOP EVERYTHING! I want, no NEED, that lightening bolt jacket. Which defies logic because I live in a tropical country and would die of perspiration by wearing it. But it’s a risk I’m willing to take. You look fabulous!
LOL Its a great piece!
I have a silver moto style jacket that I thrifted a couple years ago. I almost donated it back…glad I didn’t because it’s totally on trend now! #ScoreOneForTheOldLady 😉 Hahaha
